Troubleshooting: (by Jira Users & Admins)
The first time the plugin is installed in our favorite browser, the system loads the list of statuses and colors in a browser cookie, in this way, it does not make a call to Jira every time there is a status to shown. For this reason we use a cache in form of cookie, named: StatusColorsv2
If your admin change or modify or add new statuses and colors, probably the cookie will be outdated and must be refreshed. In that case, go to your Personal Profile page of Jira and click in the large named button “click here to reload NewStatusColorsPRO Cache…”
